Damien Hirst x Southeby Auction

|

Damien Hirst is set to make history with a massive auction of art, 'Beautiful Inside My Head Forever', includes a whole new body of work that covers the complete range of Hirst’s output and more. The auction will run over two days, commencing with an Evening Sale on Monday, 15 September, and continuing throughout the following day (Tuesday, 16 September) with a morning and afternoon session.




The two day sale, which will include 223 lots, is expected to raise a sum in excess of £65 million. Estimates will range from around £15,000-20,000 (for a range of new drawings) up to the £8,000,000-12,000,000 estimate attached to The Golden Calf –the monumental and arresting centre-piece of the sale.



Among the works to be offered will be new and exciting variations on many of the key themes that have defined Hirst’s work to date.

"After the success of the Pharmacy auction, I always felt I would like to do another auction. It’s a very democratic way to sell art and it feels like a natural evolution for contemporary art. Although there is risk involved, I embrace the challenge of selling my work in this way. I never want to stop working with my galleries. This is different. The world’s changing, ultimately I need to see where this road leads."

- Damien Hirst
